Advanced course offerings designed to respond to faculty and student interests and needs. Topics include French Impressionism, social movements in late nineteenth-century Japan, international business and the changing European economic structure.
Evolution frames all biological thinking; by the end of this course, you will understand why. We will explore different mechanisms of evolution, including natural selection and genetic drift, using well-studied experiments and applying simple algebraic models. You will learn to explain the processes underlying observed evolutionary patterns, such as the evolution of HIV, as well as predicted evolutionary outcomes that emphasize health and crop management and explain the diversity of living beings. These activities will teach you how to depict and decipher evolutionary relationships. This course assumes basic knowledge of evolutionary principles and genetics (as would be gained from an introductory biology course).
